#R2BC - Reasons to be Cheerful... 1, 2, 3
I think it must have been the snow because I can't bloody stand the stuff after the first day and it put me on a downer. It's all gone now and the sun is shining, it's a lot milder and frankly I am in a much better mood because of it. I am not a winter person at all.
My reason to be cheerful (it took me a while to come up with something, due to the grumps) is that I have at last found my motivation. The 'oompf' that all but vanished after my spell in hospital last year which led me to gain weight due to not being allowed to exercise and also in large part to laziness & self pity has returned and I have grabbed it and am running with it.
On Wednesday I weighed myself and nearly fell over, I knew I'd gained weight (chosen to ignore it, Winter padding and all that) but I didn't realise how much and I had avoided the scales at all costs. What you don't know can't hurt you after all. However, realising that that was rather stupid I dusted off the scales and stepped on... Wow! Admittedly it's not as bad as I thought it was going to be, but it was really irresponsible of me to just eat whatever I wanted without exercising like I used to.
So since Wednesday I have been back on the wagon proper and I had a cheeky sneak peek at the scales this morning (which I promised myself I would not do but I couldn't resist, just this once) and am pleased that I am already 3.5lb down. My mojo is back and I am going to take full of advantage of it and get back to feeling like I did when I wrote this post. I know I'm not fat, but the Winter padding has to go - & go it shall!
What are your reasons to be cheerful this week? Link up with Michelle and join in the bloghop.
